My single best tip of advice?
It’s so easy to measure the success of your business by looking at revenue, sales, number of academic papers written or new business ideas… outputs. But if you really want to turn up the dial on productivity, pay attention to your people – the inputs to business, and what makes them tick. If you pay attention to things like engagement, motivation, health, well-being, creating beautiful and inspiring places for people to work, the investment pays for itself over and over and over again. Our companies and institutions are run by people, not robots.
OK, that’s my advice. What’s yours?
